1 and 2

the operations are defined, so just sub in as defined.

1.
10\$2 = 3(10) + 8(2) - 2^3 = ....

same for #2

3. f(x) = 5/x + 2
the function is defined for all real values of x, except x = 0
This is not one of your choices, so the question is bogus.

If you meant f(x) = 5/(x+2) , then the function is defined for all real values of x, except x = -2
